Justin Liles: Temperatures climbing through Thursday
High pressure is in control over the Northland as drier air is in place. This high will continue to set the pace for sunny skies and warmer temperatures this week. Our cooling nights should still be enough to generate early morning fog around water ways come Wednesday morning. As the high slides more to the east we will see southerly winds take over. Temperatures are expected to climb in the mid to upper 80s and even lower 90s by Thursday.
A cold front will come swinging through late Thursday and tap into the moisture and warmth present. Some stronger late afternoon to early evening, thunderstorms are possible around the region. Cooler air returns along with some additional cloud cover Friday and Saturday. Temperatures begin to climb again starting next Monday.
